Daniel and Jamie have been together for the past 4 years, and while they were the first in their group of friends to start dating, they’ll be one of the last to tie the knot! Daniel saved up for the past year to get Jamie the perfect ring, and planned out his proposal to her meticulously. As careful as he was being, he thought for sure she knew what he was up to! In his own words, “I have tried putting her on some false leads so as to make it a surprise, but she is a smart one.”
He called us a few weeks before the proposal to ask if we could not only photograph their engagement photos, but actually be there to photograph the proposal itself! We would have to hide….we’d have to be sneaky…we couldn’t be seen….we had no idea what the conditions on the beach would be like that day….so of course we said, “YES!!”
On the big day, we hid ourselves well before the arranged time and settled in to wait. We got the “heads up” text from Daniel, and then sure enough we saw them walking down the beach towards us! Our cue to start shooting was when Daniel lifted his cell phone to take a photo of the two of them together. And then…he made Jamie the happiest girl in town by asking her to marry him! And of course, she said, “YES!!”
The best part? She had NO IDEA he was planning on proposing that weekend! It was a complete surprise, and even more of a surprise when she found out that the whole thing had been photographed! We loved it!
After we got to meet Jamie (the sweetest girl ever!) and congratulate the two of them, we were able to just walk around the beach and take photos as the sun sank lower on the horizon. We hope they felt it was as perfect a day as we did! CONGRATULATIONS, Daniel and Jamie!! We’re so happy for you and thank you so much for inviting us to capture these very special moments in your lives!
And just for fun….here’s a sneaky video Carolina took of me (Shem) shooting. (Who else thinks it’s totally weird to see themselves on video?! Not my favorite thing, haha.) Now I’m just waiting my turn to take one of her….it’s all about being stealthy around here! ;)
